Earth Day Events Around Bellingham

Earth Day is an opportunity to give back to the planet we all call home. There are several outdoor activities happening in Whatcom County to show some love to the earth and the community. Whether you prefer cleaning up local beaches or getting your hands dirty potting plants, there is something for everyone among the flora and fauna. Earth Day is Saturday, April 22, 2023 - and there are various events happening throughout the weekend.

Boundary Bay Brewery is excited to be hosting an Earth Day Market! This market will focus on vendors and artisans who create goods that are upcycled and/or sustainable!

The Earth Day Art Market will take place from 12-4 pm on Saturday, April 22nd. The market will be hosted in the brewery's outdoor Beer Garden.

"From Tree to Sea" is a special Earth Day screening of films highlighting the ways in which the fates of the Northwest's iconic salmon, rivers, forests, and communities are inextricably linked. 

Together, these three films highlight the immense cultural and ecological significance of salmon, and how the decisions we make in protecting endangered species and mature forests today are critical to building resilience amid a changing climate.

A facilitated Q&A will follow the film, which is presented by RE Sources and Endangered Species Coalition.

Join the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association and the Whatcom Conservation District to celebrate Earth Day by planting trees! The planting part is from 9am to noon. Park at the Northwest Indian College at 2522 Kwina Rd., Bellingham. 

RSVP on the website. 

Show the earth some love by screen printing a reusable bag in celebration of Earth Day. Stop by the Lightcatcher Art Studio to explore the process of screen printing while making your own bag, then use markers to embellish it with your own designs. Take home a one-of-a-kind work of reusable art that perfectly fits your vibe! All ages welcome.

The City of Bellingham offers a variety of family-friendly activities all week long, from April 16 - April 22!

Make recycled art, volunteer, visit a Washington State Park, and more.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
